GENERAL INFORMATION 

HISTORY AND BACKGROUND 

Newton College of the Sacred Heart is a four-year college 
established in 1946 by the Religious of the Sacred Heart with 
the approbation and encouragement of His Excellency Arch- 
bishop Richard J. Cushing of Boston. 

The Religious of the Sacred Heart founded the Boston Acad- 
emy of the Sacred Heart in 1880, and in 1926 transferred this 
school to Newton as the Newton Country Day School of the 
Sacred Heart. On September 8, 1945 the Schrafft estate adjoining 
the Country Day School was purchased for the purposes of the 
proposed college. On February 2, 1946 the home of Mr. Henry 
Harriman was acquired, and to it in 1949 the Rutherford estate 
was added. A corporation was formed on March 19, 1946, to 
which was granted by the General Court of the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts, on recommendation of the Board of Collegiate 
Authority, a charter giving "authority to grant and confer all 
degrees such as are usually conferred by colleges in the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts, except degrees in Medicine and degrees 
(other than honorary doctorates) in Law." 

The affiliation with the Catholic University of America ob- 
tained in 1946 was, in 1951, renewed and extended. 

The first Freshman Class was received in September 1946, 
with the plan of admitting one additional class each succeeding 
year until a regular four-year college should be in operation. 
Thirty-four Seniors received their B.A.'s at the first Commence- 
ment Exercises of the College in June 1950. 

The Society of the Sacred Heart was founded in Paris in the 
year 1800 by Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat for the education of 
girls. The first foundation in America was made in 1818 by 
Blessed Philippine Duchesne, one of Saint Madeleine Sophie's 
first companions. 

At present on all the continents, the Society has schools 
and colleges which share the advantages of an international 
educational organization. The Mother House is in Rome, where 

22 



General Information 23 

it is customary for the members of the Society to spend a 
period of time as a normal part of their training. The young 
religious are also sent to houses of study in various American 
and foreign University centers. 

Newton College of the Sacred Heart takes its place among the 
institutions of the Society as a liberal arts college deriving its 
principles from the great tradition of Catholic culture and 
striving to apply them to conditions of the world today. 

LOCATION 

The college is located in greater Boston on Centre Street in 
Newton. A campus of approximately forty acres affords ample 
space for future development and the natural beauty of its 
location has already been enhanced by careful planning and 
cultivation. The advantages of life in the country are combined 
with easy access to the rich cultural resources of the city of 
Boston. There are good recreational facilities on the campus. 

AIMS 

Those responsible for this college share the position of all 
Catholic educators who believe that man has a supernatural 
destiny and that the best interests of the individual and the 
general good of society are furthered by education ordered with 
reference to this end. 

The college aims at the complete development of the powers 
and gifts of the students whom it receives, and endeavors to fit 
them for the opportunities and responsibilities of life in the 
world today. The enlargement of these opportunities and re- 
sponsibilities, and the complexity of the problems— religious, 
social, political, and economic— which women have to face, call 
for education at a high intellectual level. 

To fulfil her duties, a woman who has capacity to profit by 
the necessary training should have knowledge and an interest 
in acquiring further knowledge; the power of independent 
thought, with freedom from prejudices and from subservience to 
commonly accepted standards if such standards do not bear the 



24 General Information 

test of truth and justice; a firm grasp of moral principles and 
a character sufficiently strong to support and defend these prin- 
ciples; powers of judgment and reasoning which have been 
developed by practice in the application of principles to matters 
of importance; and, because the education of a woman would 
otherwise be incomplete, a training in the appreciation of the 
beautiful and a development of those finer qualities of mind and 
heart which strengthen the dignity and the power of women. 

CURRICULUM 

The aim of developing the natural powers and gifts of a woman 
in such a way as to fit her for her duties in life with reference 
to her supernatural destiny determines the character of the 
curriculum. In view of this end, the following studies are pre- 
scribed for all students: Theology and Philosophy, as furnishing 
principles of coordination and unification in all branches; 
Psychology, as necessary for an understanding of human activity; 
English, because of the importance of the power of expression 
in writing as well as in speaking; Literature and Languages, 
which give access to the great thought of the world; History and 
Social Studies, as exemplifying the principles furnished by 
Theology and Philosophy. 

In addition to the prescribed courses, there is opportunity for 
concentration in the fields of Classics, English, History, Social 
Sciences, Mathematics, Music, Natural Sciences, Philosophy, and 
Education. 

COLLEGE LIFE 

The authorities of the college leave much freedom to the stu- 
dents and entrust them with responsibility in the belief that 
education is a progressive development, and that young women 
of college age have reached a stage of mental and moral growth 
at which it is advantageous for them to bear such responsibility. 
The officers of Student Government, elected by the Student Body, 
enforce regulations in cooperation with a Faculty Adviser. 

The spirit of the college is essentially based upon Catholic 
ideals and practice. The students follow courses in Sacred 



General Information 25 

Scripture, Theology and Liturgical Music; and daily Mass and 
attention to the changes in the liturgical cycle are looked upon 
as normal factors in their training. Besides an organization for 
stimulating works of charity and zeal among the students, there 
is a Sodality of the Children of Mary, the purpose of which is 
the spiritual advancement of its members. 

The college administration lays much stress on the programme 
of academic and personal guidance in which the officers of 
administration and the members of the faculty cooperate with a 
view to the best development of the individual student in 
accordance with her gifts and interests. The resident students 
live in the four Houses: Barat, Duchesne, Stuart, and Hardey, 
each of which has its own Warden and its group of students 
representing a cross-section of the college. In this way, all classes 
mingle freely, and the upper classmen pass on college traditions 
to their younger sisters. 

There are a number of student organizations some of which 
are rather closely related to academic courses, while others are 
purely social and non-academic in character. The varied inter- 
ests of the students find opportunities for expression in such 
groups as the Glee Club, the Dramatic Association, The Inter- 
national Relations Club, etc. Besides the regular athletic pro- 
gram in which all the students participate, those who wish to do 
so may engage in other forms of activity, such as skiing, skating, 
riding, etc. There is also intercourse with the students of other 
colleges in the New England area, not only in intercollegiate 
athletic contests but also in meetings of an academic character 
and in purely social events. 

PLACEMENT SERVICE 

The Placement Service offers vocational guidance to students 
and to alumnae of the College. This service includes occupa- 
tional information, talks by authorities in vocational and occu- 
pational fields, interviews with experts, visits to organizations, 
and placement services for under-graduates and alumnae in full 
or part time, paid or volunteer positions.

admission to the centers at which they present themselves, will 
be admitted to the tests. Requests for transfer of examination 
centers cannot be considered unless these reach the Board office 
at least one week prior to the date of the examination.

overseas centers should reach the appropriate Board Office not 
later than three months prior to a scheduled examination date.

candidates of the action taken upon their applications for ad- 
mission. Candidates will not receive reports upon their tests 
from the Board.

SCHOLARSHIPS 

A scholarship is above all a scholastic honor. All scholars are 
not receiving financial aid, but all are maintaining a scholastic 
average of at least 3.2. A limited amount of aid is available. 
This will be given on a competitive basis and candidates inter- 
ested in competing should apply not later than the early part 
of the scholastic year preceding their entrance into college. 
Students who receive financial aid are not expected to do any 
special compensatory work. All students at Newton contribute 
to the public service. 

The Scholarship examination will take place on the last Satur- 
day of January from 12:30 to 3:30 P.M. 

Registration for the scholarship examination is not considered 
as an application for college. No fee is charged. 

Those who obtain scholarship aid are required to pay the 
usual application fee of $10, and any special fees. 

The Archbishop Gushing Scholarship 

His Excellency Archbishop Gushing has offered full scholar-

student who needs financial aid a^nd does not hold a scholarship 
can receive a reduction in tuition and pay the equivalent of 
this reduction by working for the College at the rate of seventy- 
five cents an hour. No student is allowed to work more than 
fifteen hours a week while College is in session. Clerical work, 
switchboard service and library service, and other occupations of 
this type are assigned by the Administration. A contract between 
the College and the student specifies the number of hours of 
work to be done per year. 



♦Honor student. 



Academic Standards 41 

ACADEMIC STANDARDS 

The standing of a student is determined by her class work and 
by her achievement in the mid-year and final examinations. 
Each course given in the college has a specific credit value, and 
each mark received has a specific value. Each credit with a mark 
of A counts 4; A—, 3.7; B+, 3.5; B, 3; B— , 2.7; and so on to 
D, 1; E, o; F, —1. 

A mark of E indicates that the student has failed to pass the 
subject for which the mark is given, but in certain cases one re- 
examination may be allowed. Failure in the second examination 
automatically gives F for the course, which may not be made up 
by re-examination. If the re-examination is passed, the mark 
becomes D on the record. 

Students are required to maintain a certain minimum scholas- 
tic average. For Freshmen this is 1.7; for Sophomores 2; for 
Upper Classmen 2.2. A student who fails to do this is auto- 
matically in poor scholastic standing and may be dropped from 
the college. In such a case, the college will do everything possi- 
ble to obtain her admission to another school. 

Scholars are those who during the previous semester have main- 
tained a scholastic average of from 3.2 to 3.7 Honor students are 
those who during the previous semester have maintained a 
scholastic average of 3.8 or more. Freshmen who have obtained 
scholarships rank automatically as scholars. 

ATTENDANCE AT CLASS 
Students are expected to attend all their scheduled college 
classes and not to absent themselves without sufficient reason. 
However, as emergencies inevitably arise during the course of 
a college semester, and to allow a certain freedom where these 
are concerned, Freshmen are allowed three self-excused absences 
during the first semester, six during the second semester; Sopho- 
mores are allowed eight self-excused absences a semester; Juniors, 
ten; Seniors, twelve. Scholars are entitled to as many self- 
excuse.d absences as they carry hours of class a week, but during 
a term they may not excuse themselves from the same class more 
than that class meets in a week. Honor students are entitled to 



42 Academic Standards 

an unlimited number of self-excused absences from class. Stu- 
dents in poor scholastic standing are entitled to no self-excused 
absences. 

Self-excused absences do not relieve the student from responsi- 
bility for work required while she was absent, nor do they give 
her credit for a quiz that she may have missed. 

^EXAMINATIONS 
An examination period occurs at the end of each semester. 
Unexcused absence from an examination is counted as a failure 
in the course. Absence from an examination is excused only for 
illness or a serious emergency. 

There are two periods a year set aside for re-take examinations 
when students who have permission may present themselves: 
(i) Immediately before college opens in September. 
(2) Within the first month of the Candlemas term. 

HONORS 

The college confers honors at graduation upon students who 
have maintained a high average of scholastic excellence during 
their entire course. The senior essay and the comprehensive 
examinations taken together count as a term's work whose result 
added to that of the eight terms is divided by nine. The scholas- 
tic average required for a degree cum laiide is 3.5 - 3.9; for 
magna cum laude, 4.0 - 4.4; for summa cum laude, 4.5 and over. 
These honors are based entirely upon scholarship. For member- 
ship in honor societies, leadership also will be taken into 
consideration. 

BIBLE LECTURES 

Each term there will be a lecture by an authority on the Holy 
Scriptures which the faculty and the entire student body will 
attend. These lectures will be given on the Thursday nearest 
the feast of St. Jerome, September 30, and that nearest the feast 
of St. Gregory, March 12. 

THE ST. THOMAS LECTURE 

The feast of St. Thomas Aquinas, March 7, is celebrated by 
a solemn High Mass in the Dominican rite, and by a lecture 
given by a distinguished Thomist.
